Day two of LOAD. Today's prompt was no pictures. As soon as I heard this, I knew exactly the story I wanted to tell. I wrote the journaling and printed it on my wide format printer. I don't use this thing nearly as often as I should. I think it's location prevents this. I'm looking around my room to figure out a way to get it out of the cavernous pit in which it now resides and put it out front and center. Only problem is the thing is huge - so it's going to take some maneuvering. We'll see if I can figure that out.
I didn't want to pull out all of the Christmas embellishments and paper that I own to scrap this Christmas story, so I chose items that were handy: a 6x6 paper pad from Authentique, some red ribbon from a kit, DIY thickers in my favorite font (Rootbeer Float!) that I covered in red glitter, a pack of brads from MME, some Prima Letters, a bit of Kaisercraft bling and Glimmer Glaze.
I attempted to use the silver Glimmer Glaze on my layout for day one, but after smattering it on the page, decided I didn't like it and covered it up. On this layout, I used the red to paint a border around three sides of the layout.
I'm thankful for the fact that this story is now captured in my book - never to be forgotten.
